Sick, disgusting , you should be ashamed.
Genesis 19:34

The scripture you list is about a sin that occurred after Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed. Lot gets drunk and his stupid daughters participate in incest. Bad things happen when you drink too much. Also bad things happen when you donít raise your kids in a righteous environment.

God didnít tell those girls to do that. And neither did Lot. The bible doesnít hide this sin but reveals how perverted these former inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah
were.

Yet you point this scripture out as if this was something that was sanctioned by God. Man be a straight shooter and stop this misrepresentation. If you have to use these kinds of tactics what does that say about your argument?

Iíll tell you what it says. Your argument is a house of cards.

Hence proof of why Christianity is the worst set of morals possible.

If any of his victims were not Christian they are in hell while he chuckles at them from heaven.

Does God want the 49ers to win, or the Ravens?

The winning players tend to thank God for the victory. Why don't the losers ever get pissed at God for letting the other guys win?

Why would "real" interaction not include through the internet? People are more themselves online than they are in person. In the physical society there are pressures that most people give into which dictate their behavior and words, you cannot trust someone if you don't get to know them without those pressures first. Online those pressures do not exist, primarily because of the illusion of anonymity. I also don't like USians much at all, and prefer the company of Europeans, mostly people in the UK. I am just not that "American" at heart, and cannot stoop low enough to even hang out with the dullards that live in this country.

Yawn
Spare me the sermon... The book speaks for itself. I've read it.
Utter nonsense, copied from older myths.
Much ado about nothing of substance.

The New Testament writer of the Gospel of John attempted to portray Jesus as a valid prophet who was predicted by Moses.

Linking Jesus to miracles was part of that process.
Then they evolve Jesus further by claiming he is now the NEW savior which people must believe in.

In doing so, these writers portray Jesus as giving instructions which contradict God's word in the Old Testament.

Because Jesus presumed to speak things in God's name which God NEVER commanded any of his prophets to say, Jesus qualifies as a false prophet.

Jesus was also put to death, fulfilling Deut 18:20.!

Christians are always proclaiming that Jesus fulfilled hundreds of Old Testament "prophecies" but you can be sure that the fulfillment of Deut 18:20 by Jesus is one example you won't hear Christians advertise to the world.

We call that reality.

See? You have no clue what's out there.

Perhaps it's just the town you live in that's full of those dullards.

You'll never know though, you remain hidden behind a screen.

To promote Abrahamic religious tradition and family values?

Don't forget, in the myth, Adam & Eve began it all, and then the Yahweh! decided it was time for a do over with relatives - again - after the flood.

That's a fantastic myth you've got there.
